Cold Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Studies have proven that lasers have the power to heal in ways never before suspected. Cold Laser Therapy has been shown to repair tissue, reduce inflammation and relieve chronic pain especially when used with other chiropractic modalities.

In January of 2002, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved this Cold Laser for "Adjunctive Use in Pain Therapy". This approval was obtained only after the required scientifically intensive 'double blind' testing.

Here are a few conditions in which laser therapy has proven to be effective:
# Injuries/Trauma
# Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
# Back and shoulder problems
# Fibromyalgia
# Tendonitis
# Osteoarthritis

There are nearly 2000 investigations from over eighty countries that have been published in various medical journals, studying the effects of Laser Therapy on humans and animals.

How does it work?
The simple answer is "photonic absorption". Laser light energy, at the correct frequency and pulsing rate, converts into chemical energy that initiates a cascade of events at a cellular level.
# Cold Laser promotes healing in many conditions because it penetrates the skin, increases the ATP and activates enzymes in the targeted cells.
# Growth factor responds within the cells and tissue as a result of increased ATP and protein synthesis.
# Improved cell proliferation.
# Pain relief as a result of increased endorphin release.
# Strengthening the immune system response via increasing levels of lymphocyte activity.

Advantages of Laser Therapy:
# Non -Toxic
# Non-Invasive
# Ease of application
# No side effects
# Safe - cannot over administer
# Cost effective
